In Bowling For Columbine, Moore mixes chilling footage, outrageous animation and candid interviews with everyone from the NRA's Charlton Heston to shock-rocker Marilyn Manson to explore America's culture of guns, violence and fear. In addition to an Academy Award® for Best Documentary in 2003, Bowling For Columbine won more than 20 other awards and was named one of the best films of the year by more than 160 critics. The Big One follows Moore's journey to find an executive – any executive – who will answer one big question: If Fortune 500 companies are posting record-setting profits, why do they continue laying off thousands of workers? Uniquely entertaining and thought-provoking, The Big One became a favorite among critics and audiences alike, winning numerous film festival awards.
The Bowling For Columbine two-disc Special Edition DVD contains over four hours of bonus material including an exclusive interview with Moore on his Oscar® win and acceptance speech, an audio commentary, television appearances, a video montage of Moore following the film festival circuit, a photo gallery, a Marilyn Manson music video, an educational "Teacher's Guide" and more. The Big One DVD includes the original theatrical trailer. The Michael Moore DVD Collector's Set will be available for the suggested retail price of $29.98. Additionally, each film will be sold separately on DVD for the suggested retail prices of $14.95 for
the Bowling For Columbine standard edition and $19.99 for The Big One. The standard edition DVD of Bowling For Columbine will not include bonus material.

Are we a nation of gun nuts… or are we just nuts? Moore journeys into America's heartland to answer this question following the tragic 1999 massacre at Columbine High School. Probing the underlying issues of racism, poverty and fear in our culture with a mix of wit, compassion and "bottomless chutzpah" (Variety), Moore delivers a "volcanically funny and seriously scary look at America's obsession with guns [that's] meant to shake us up good. And it does"
